I am also thinking of grabbing another 750 and then short stroke the drives to like 1.5TB that should give me some really nice speeds, and grabbing a 1TB drive for storage/backups. Just gotta wait and see If i get the job I applied for smile.gif As long as I get past the background check the job is mine but you never know....

And as far as drives go WD blacks are the best hands down.

eclipseaudio4 is your WD black sata II or sata III ?
i like my 2 WD 640 sata III they are in raid 0
the 640 are the smallest size with the largest cache

I believe that mine are SATA II and SATA III but I would have to power down to double check. I thought both of them were SATA III(the one I got from Zip Zoom Fly was) but someone told me on the Egg that my other drive was SATA II. Which I'm pretty sure when I made my purchase I specifically chose a SATA III drive.

It works is all I know at this point.I recommend buying both drives at the same time to improve the chances on getting a matched pair. But that could be why I don't have that notorious failure rate dogging me. That and I use the highest speed SATA cables I can get. I have our 6.0Gb cables exclusively on the RAID array. Everything else is 3.0Gb since I don't have anything but what came in the box in my cabinet.

*Edit*Ummm nvm I guess I was sold SATA Dooshes. Just looked at my black book and it has both Drives at SATA II. So that'd be what I'm running. Almost forgot I have my build logged in velum pages. lol

Thanks for the input! Out of curiosity how long have you had your 640's in raid? Any problems so far? I've read TLER function can not be disabled with Blk drives any longer has that had any affect on your setup? Must be the mobo/raid driver works well.
As for Eclipseaudio4's comment about the 640's being faster I've read the slightly older versions were only a 2x320 GB platter drive (reason why there faster) and can't seem to locate any info on these new ones. I'll assume there the same way. I also have a 640 blk 3.0 in a external Esata drive and love it. Think I'll take your advise and just order up a pair of these 640's unless I stumble onto new info sometime tonight.

I got the 2 hard drives with the formula when they first came out.
I used the asus raid drivers that came with the mother board
I have not had any problems at all
Then when the extreme came out I took the 2 hard drives out of the formula and put them in the extreme and it boot right up.
Then I ordered 2 more WD 640 stat III for my formula and set them up in raid 0 also
I do like these drives
Do not forget to Register them because they have a 5 year warranty

Always register my stuff too. Thanks for all the info, most useful/helpful. Looks like I'll be placing that order here in just a few. It'll work out just right as I ordered some rotary connectors for my loop Friday which should give me plenty of time to also Lap my WB and have that part done before these drives arrive.

Any better way than a clean install for this Raid setup? Can I mirror what I have presently have onto it? Or is it better to just re image fresh? I trust I can still partition my Raid setup to separate the OS, and than simply redirect to new locations for Docs, pics etc like a regular HDD setup?

I have this problem on a CHIV Formula. The speakers aren't the problem as they work fine with other devices. None of the other mobos I have set up are making popping noises at all. Ive unplugged everything that isnt needed and reinstalled drivers, but the popping still happens. Should I RMA this board or is there something else I can do?

Also, there is always a pop when a hard drive spins up and often when a program is launched. Would that indicate PSU?

There's a chance. Any opportunity of getting a PSU on loan from a friend to test? If not, try using a sound card and deactivate the on board sound and see if you still have the popping sound with the addded card. If so, then you are closer to a PSU problem BUT remember, the MOBO is in between the PSU and the "on-board sound card" still. Your best bet in isolating this issue would be with a loaner PSU IMO.

I have an EMU0404 USB connected to the machine and there is no popping at all on its speakers, but that is a usb connection, so Im not sure if it would count as a good test or not. Ill still get another PSU and test it in a few minutes.
